To The Illustrious Mr. Baehr:

I understand and appreciate your concern...
but what are we talking about here???


How more cross-platform can you get?

Let Renaissance volunteers create their editor....
Hand the code over to the Gorm volunteers so they can
quickly add the capability to produce Renaissance/XML
output ...


NeXT (pun intended) thing you know, Apple developers
are going to want Renaissance output for
Cocoa/Interface Builder--because it's EASIER and MORE

Then the Gnome/KDE folks are going to want Renaissance
integrated with their tools (Glade, etc.).

I mean, let's face it: every hour someone's coming up
with a new application of the XML technology BECAUSE

<at this point XML pundit takes applause and runs
offstage before tomatoes are thrown>
